Fall Topwater on Lake Lanier

Report Date: October 14, 2013

Shane Watson Guide Service Report 10-14-13. We appreciate all the calls about the much anticipated fall topwater striper bite. The only thing we can say is, some days they are up and doing it well and some days not. Fall is here and the weather/water temps are cooling down which is what triggers the fish to feed on top. Our boats have been out daily and a mix of things have been working. Freelined bluebacks and trout have been producing on points. Downlined bluebacks 20-25 feet deep on and just off deeper points and humps have caught some nice fish on our boats. When the stripers have been up busting on the surface, freelines, Redfins, Spooks, and spoons have worked well. There is nothing like casting into a big school of busting stripers. This schooling pattern has been sporadic, as some days they are up and feeding well, and some days they have been down and scattered. The top water bite will continue to improve and will peak over the next 6 weeks. This report is brought to you by Shane Watson Guide Service, Hammond's Fishing Center, Carolina Skiff, Suzuki Marine, Lowrance, Batteries Plus, and Magic Tilt. Good Fishing and We Appreciate Your Business.
